I seen a pic of myself and was in shock that I weighed that much. I mean I knew the numbers were too high but I didn't see them. I was also starting a downward spiral with my self esteem and knew I had to take charge of the way I feel.

I lost about 25 pounds a couple of years ago, but i wasn't exercising and the diet was pretty restrictive. Once I stopped following the diet i put back on about 90% of the weight. Last winter I bought an elliptical, which I was using, but not in conjunction with dieting. I knew I didn't want to put on anymore weight so I had to try something. I was looking for a calorie tracker on the internet and stumbled on SP. It has been everything I needed.
Success consists of getting up once oftener than you fall down. ANON.
For me it was buying some capris for myself as a Mother's Day gift from my Hubby - I wanted 3 different pairs and ended up with 3 different brands. 2 Brands fitted me still in a size 6 on the tighter side of comfortable but one brand I had to go with a size 8.
I've not been happy with my size/look for a long time but that was it for me.....I didn't want to give in and start buying new bigger sizes to be comfortable.
